Boron Tolerance Databases: Boron Tolerance Limits for Agricultural Crops, USDA-ARS, Soil Salinity Laboratory
Entry ID: USDA.ARS.USSL.BoronCrops

Abstract: This database contains boron tolerance information for a variety of
agricultural crops. The information was compiled from a variety of
studies and the data serve only as guidelines to relative tolerances.
The maximum tolerable limit is given in g/m3. The Crop species are
listed seperately for very sensitive, sensitive, moderately sensitive,
moderately tolerant, tolerant, and very tolerant. The data set can be
